Santa Cards

This year I made a few Christmas cards using my Cricut and SCAL program.  The Santa hat and holly are free downloads from Birds Cards. I ran the trim and pom pom through the cuttlebug to emboss and used foam squares to pop up just the one edge of the hat.

These next three Santa's were done using a kit I bought from SVG Cuts.  I first saw this card HERE on Splitcoaststampers.  I love how she used the Peachy Keen stamps for the face.  I don't have those stamps so I hand drew the eyes myself.  Those eyes are what really makes the card. On the card above, I glittered the trim and pom pom and ran the beard and mustache through the cuttlebug to emboss. The holly is a button I had.

This card I used paper from My Minds Eye for the hat, the holly svg from Birds Cards and ran the hat trim, pom pom, beard and mustache through the cuttlebug to emboss.

This card is actually smaller than the previous two.  Those are about 5 1/2 inch square.  I reduced the files down to about 80% for this one so that it would fit into a standard envelope.  The hat is paper from My Mind's Eye.

I made this card a few years ago.  I saw similar cards on Spitcoaststampers.  Using them as examples I free-handed the hat, trim, beard and mustache.  The nose and brows are an SU! punch.  I ran everything through the cuttlebug to emboss. The eyes are brads.
